House decs

Campus decorations have been part of Mizzou’s Homecoming formula since the 1930s. Themes for house “decs” run the gamut from taunts at opposing football teams to popular culture or good old-fashioned school spirit. Students labor long hours designing and constructing the decorations and, in the process, form some lasting bonds. Check out this slide show of decs from 1937 to 2010.

Adobe Flash version 8, or higher, and Java Script are required to view the slide show for this feature story.
